Have a Heart

January12Hi, this week’s Wednesday blog challenge over at Simon Says Stamp was called Have a Heart.

Of course Valentine’s Day is approaching and I made a few cards with love in mind. What I liked about this card was how clean and vibrant it turned out. I still kept the theme of the tree trunk and love messages but I wanted a reason to use the sentiment.

January10I have always loved the font and this card gave me the perfect opportunity to use it…the card is for my my hubby but shhhhh, don’t tell him that you have seen it first before him 🙂

I used some well loved supplies that have been utilized in previous posts, the Pierced Heart Stax by My Favourite ThingsSay it in Style stamp set by Clearly Besotted and the Bold Banner Die by Mama Elephant. I couldn’t resist using the Tiny Rectangle Envelope Die by Simon Says Stamp as its so cute and really useful for many ideas. In fact, it’s the same die that I used for my daughter’s wedding invitations.

I hope you like it, I hope my hubby does too!

You are welcome to leave comments, as its always nice to hear from you.

By for now, Cheryl 🙂

Wednesday Blog Challenge-Simon Says Stamp

Hi all, Here’s my contribution to this week’s Wednesday Blog Challenge. Simon Says Stamp wanted us to showcase their own brand items, saying ‘Anything Goes’. Here’s my attempt to do just that with a bit of cute humour!

My brother- in law- turns 40 shortly, and this stamp set called Birthday Farm Animals by Simon Says Stamp was perfect. You have to use humour for family and friends…right???

Wed Blog ChallengeAnyway, this is quite a versatile stamp set which is why I like it. I love humour in my life, it’s helped me out on many occasions and yes, laughter is the best medicine in my opinion :).

The font and sentiments are cheeky and the little animals are adorable! You can not help but have fun with this set, just make sure other people you aim to make the card for, do not take their age too seriously.

Wednesday Blog ChallengeIf you are wondering the paper I used is called Let’s Polka by Lawn Fawn and the banner is the Heart Banner from La-La Land Crafts. I will be sure to add these items to the purchase pages for you as you can get them both from Simon Says Stamp.

As usual, let me know what you think as I love to hear from you.

Bye for now, Cheryl 🙂

Valentine’s Card

Hi Guys, lets talk Valentine’s.

Throughout my life, I have never really given Valentine’s cards to anyone except to a boyfriend or my hubby. I was very surprised when I moved to Canada to see Valentine’s cards were given to all sorts of people like friends, family and even teachers! I am curious……is this a North American tradition? Send me a message and let me know!

Valentines 2I have made some valentine’s or love themed cards and I wanted to share them with you, starting with todays. I was really pleased with how it turned out. I used three of my favourite stamp companies, the Woodgrain Backdrops by Lawn Fawn, the Pierced Heart Stax by My Favourite Things and the great sentiments stamp set Say it in Style by Clearly Besotted Stamps. I imagined a tree with a couple sitting underneath, then carving ‘love’ into the tree…………..voila!

Valentines 2Its amazing how many love themes you can come up with. I suppose they do say it’s what makes the world go round…or was the ‘money’ ?

Keep a look out as I will be posting more blog entries to show you other Valentine cards that I have made.

Don’t forget to leave your comments, Cheryl 🙂
